- Hedda Gabler [play]
Play by late Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen first published in 1890, the subject of more than a dozen feature films.
"Enter the debonair world of the 1950's, where hidden desires and careless living threaten the calm and 'castles in the air' come crashing down.
Hedda Gabler, the upper class daughter of a General has become the unlikely wife of clueless academic George Tesman. The unexpected arrival of former schoolmate, Thea Elvsted, and old flame, Eilert Lovborg, re-ignites in Hedda a childlike and ultimately fatal desire for control."
